The Oriental Beat goes on – Selected Eastern Outernationals



Here´s a selection of some favourite outernational tracks coming from what the west calles superficially “the east”, with some excursions to african or indian songs with oriental influences.  Most of them are from the 60ies and 70ies and taken from recent compilations, reissues or 7″.  I tried to select this time more danceable psychedelic & beat orientated tracks than in my last oriental mixes. The title is taken from a 7″ by isrealian “David the Red Sea Singer”.

Thanks for the blog radiodiffussion internationaal for digging some of these tracks and great inspiration.
